Considering our school for your child to start in September 2021? Unfortunately, we are unable to offer parent tours; please view this video for a flavour of our school.
Focus Activity - Creative/D&T
Today we would love you to a go at making a sea scene picture with a moving part. There is an example of a picture we made below, but we are sure you are far more creative!
There are many ways you can make part of a picture move for example with a lever, slider, wheel or pivot mechanism. We have include instructions for each of these on the attached PowerPoint. If you have time you could practise making each mechanism so you can decide which one you would like to use.
Then you need to create your sea picture. We used water colours for ours, but you could use anything you like such as; pencils, pens, collage, paint, natural materials etc...
Whilst it is drying you can make the moving part - maybe you have chosen a sea creature, a boat or submarine. What will it do? Move across the page, bob up and down, go in and out of the water/sand, slide in and out?
We can't wait to see your finished masterpieces!
Peg Activity - Writing
Have a look at these rhyming couplet sea creature poems. Can you add a rhyming word into the missing gap?
For a challenge you could write your own sea creature rhyming poem.
Lolly Activity - Maths
Look at the numbers on the sea creatures and write how many tens and how many ones the number has. For a challenge write your own numbers onto the blank sea creatures and work out how many tens and ones.
Focus Activity - Phonics
During the morning briefing the children will flick through the previously taught digraphs, trigraphs and tricky words.
Today we are going to play a game that is similar to full circle. In this game a grown up reads the word and the children find the correct phonemes and make the word. For example, if I said the word ‘oil’ they would find the ‘o', 'i' and 'l' and put them in the correct order to make the word.
To be able to do this at home with your child we would like an adult to read the word, your child should then be able to hear the sounds and either write the word down or use the phoneme cards for your child to find the sounds they need to use. Please make sure your child knows what the word means. For example, after you have said ‘boy’, put it into a sentence “The boy was playing in the snow.”
Full circle list - oil – coil – coin – coy – toy – toil – soil – spoil – foil – boil – boy – ploy – joy – join – loin
Focus Activity - Tricky Word
We are going to have a go at practising some of our tricky words. We are going to give you a word a day to practise. Today your tricky word is only.
Choose one of the options, or anything you can find at home, and write the tricky word for today using that resource. See how many times you can write the word in a minute! Then choose 3 more resources and rewrite only using;
Sort these animals into their different habitats. Where do you think they live?
